Here’s the first video for a new Converse series called 3 Artists, 1 Song. “DoYaThing” is a super-collab featuing Gorillaz, Andre 3000 and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy. Jamie Hewlett of Gorillaz directed the video which gives us a look into the Gorillaz life at home – it’s really weird.
Looks like there’s going to be a potentially genius, mega-collab from Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and André 3000 releasing later this month as part of Converse’s exclusive series “Three Artists. One Song”. Here’s a teaser for the video.
James Murphy plays a small role in The Comedy which screened at the Sundance Film Festival this week. Starring Tim Heidecker of “Tim and Eric” fame, it’s the story of a Williamsburg guy who “passes the time with his friends, playing games of mock sincerity and irreverence.” In this scene Heidecker tortures a poor cabby.
Richard Branson’s annual free music festival returns to the DC area. This year: The Black Keys, Deadmau5, Cee Lo Green, Cut Copy, TV On the Radio, Empire of the Sun, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, Ghostland Observatory, !!!, Empire of the Sun and more. Find out how to get tickets here.
And here it is: the track that started it all. Thanks LCD, it’s been fun.
If you weren’t able to get tickets to LCD Soundsystem’s final show at Madison Square Garden on April 2nd, Pitchfork will be streaming it LIVE, in real time, and once only. Pretty cool.
LCD Soundsystem says their upcoming album, This Is Happening, will be their last. Check out one of my favorites from their first album.
